We’re not talking on the head, but the face, arms and chest. Anyway, Freaking News has put on a contest for those with advanced Photoshop skills in which they ask contestants to slap on a beard, chest hair and maybe even a unibrow to some of today’s most popular female celebrities.

The Half Graffiti Hotel Room by Tilt The Au Vieux Panier Hotel in Marseille, France, has worked with graffiti artist Tilt on the Half Graffiti Hotel Room. The outcome is certainly impressive, especially the sharp division of colorful and white that the artist went with. The hotel offers 6 artist rooms, and this new one by Tilt, is for sure the most impressive. In the end it is all about the details that make it stand out, because the concept could have gone wrong really easily in our mind. The consequence of the concept is the most impressive part of the project. Take a more detailed look at the Half Graffiti Hotel Room after the jump. (Via MyModernMet)

Future Of Fashion: Technology On The Catwalk By Tom Cheshire, Technology Correspondent One thing never goes out of fashion: talking about wearable technology at London Fashion Week. The jamboree shows up twice a year and technology is always at the forefront - whether it's Burberry live streaming their shows, or exotic LED dresses.

Blog Food, fashion, and robots: What to expect at SXSW 2015 Despite faint grumbles that SXSW Interactive has lost its sheen, there is still plenty to be excited about at the event this year. For those heading to Austin’s annual tech jamboree or just watching Twitter from home, here are some of the themes to watch out for. Southbites, foodies' delight Tacos, BBQ, and food trucks are some of the great perks of traveling to Austin for SXSW. An activation from BBH New York also taps into the foodie theme. Internet of things and privacy Judging by CES International and Mobile World Congress, the Internet of Things will be a key theme at SXSW this year. In the wake of the NSA revelations, privacy and security dominated the debate at SXSW last year, tackled by Google chairman Eric Schmidt, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, and NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden during their keynotes. As well as wearables, there are plenty of talks on retail innovation, 3D printing, bio-material technology, and startups in the space. Worried a robot will take your job?
